On a roll: Shreyas Iyer in action on Friday

Calcutta/Shimoga: Shahbaz Nadeem seems to be getting better and better this season.

Finishing with six second-innings wickets, the left-arm spinner paved the way for Jharkhand’s 10-wicket victory over Haryana in the Ranji Trophy Group B tie, at the JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi, on Friday.

The bonus-point win helps Jharkhand move up to fourth in the group with eight points from three matches so far.

In Group A, leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal (4/91) and off-spinner Krishnappa Gowtham (3/92) shared bulk of the spoils as Karnataka beat Hyderabad by 59 runs in an exciting encounter.

Chasing a target of 380, Hyderabad were all out for 320, giving Karnataka their second outright win in as many matches. Karnataka are now on top of Group A with 13 points in two games.

In the end, it was the 57-run first-innings lead that clinched it for the hosts.

In Group C, Shreyas Iyer hit 138 as Mumbai got 371 for five in their second innings after conceding a lead against Tamil Nadu.

Hyderabad started the day at 92 for two, but slumped to 117 for 4 before BP Sandeep (80) and Akash Bhandari (28) built on a partnership of 93 runs for the fifth wicket.

Reddy raised visions of an improbable victory with five boundaries and three sixes.
